What started off as a student government project has become a full-scale, full-time resource for students in one North Carolina community who are living with food insecurity.
At Washington High School, this food pantry remains fully stocked with non-perishable goods for students to take if they need it.
To help the teens in need to remain anonymous, the pantry in the Beaufort County school does not advertise—it’s all word of mouth.
“We wanted to focus on those that need it, but they don’t want to tell us that they need it,” Erin Lewis, a senior, told WNCT.
Along with the canned goods, school supplies and personal toiletry items are also made available to the student population.
The school hopes to add perishable food items next.
